The Southern Door Board of Education will look at adding several dual-credit compatible classes at its regular meeting on Monday. The board will consider the approval of a plan that would redesign four courses to be dual-credit compatible with the Northeast Wisconsin Technical College. The state of Wisconsin has asked schools around the area to give students as many opportunities to earn dual-credit while in high school as possible. Southern Door Superintendent Patti Vickman said the board will also look at adding another senior-level class to help prepare for the next step after high school.
Dual-credit classes are taken over the course of a normal school day. The school’s normal instructor will continue to teach each course, but each class will be changed to fit the curriculum set up by the NWTC.
